Robbie Williams has been announced as the third British Summer Time (BST) festival headliner. The former Take That singer joins previously confirmed joint headliners Bob Dylan and Neil Young. The Hyde Park show marks his only UK open-air show of 2019 announced so far and will take place on the final day of the festival, 14 July, coming after the singer’s Las Vegas residency concerts in March and June. Williams has not performed at the London-based festival before.
Special guests are yet to be announced. James King, one of the event’s organisers, said: ?One of the truly great British entertainers, we?re so excited to finally welcome Robbie Williams to Hyde Park, who has been on our wish list since we started seven years ago. ?Robbie works a crowd like no one else and his collection of hits will be the perfect way to round off British Summer Time for 2019.?
Joint headliners Dylan and Young will hit the stage on July 12 in what festival organisers have said is the ?biggest event? in its history. Previous acts to play British Summer Time include Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, The Rolling Stones, The Strokes and Black Sabbath. The 2018 event included performances from the likes of Bruno Mars, Roger Waters, Michael Buble and Paul Simon’s last ever UK concert.
